Dartmouth North CFC

Dartmouth North Community Food Centre is a project of Dartmouth Family Centre. The Dartmouth Family Centre is located in North Dartmouth, an under-served and high-needs area with a dearth of community gathering spaces. The area is home to significant senior and immigrant populations: 13.5% of the population is aged 65, and many live alone and on a fixed income; 31% of households are single-parent families; and immigrants make up 6.4% of the population, a number that is expected to grow in coming years. Launched in the fall of 2015, Dartmouth North Community Food Centre expands on the existing array of programs to provide a number of new entry points for families with young children, while expanding food access and skill-building opportunities for other community members. Programming includes community action programs, community meals, an affordable produce market, and community kitchens and gardens.
